    Count me in, lately it seems as if there's a bit of a low-end deficiency around town, so I welcome any and all opportunities to meet fellow bassists locally.

    I lived in Pittsburgh from 1960-70. But since I didn't start playing bass until 1974, I'd feel disingenuous joining your club. Just want to give a shout to my homies in Oakland, the North Side, and Scott Township (...as if anyone in 1960-70 had a clue what "homies" meant!)

    I live in Greensburg? Close enough maybe.

    I know my way around Pittsburgh if that is any compensation.

    Out of the area for ~20 years but I used to live in Connellsville / Fayette Co. Played mostly in and around Fayette and Westmoreland Co's. My son lives in Mt. Pleasant, works as a paramedic, and attends Pitt / Greensburg campus.

    Any of you guys know Erin Snyder? She played upright bass in a bunch of Pittsburgh C&W, bluegrass, & roots rock bands (but I met her when she was playing 'cello in an avant-jazz outfit called Watershed Quintet). Fabulous musician & wonderful person; I lost touch with her a few years ago.

    not Erin, but you mention Watershed, that may be the band a guitarist I know named Daryl Fleming was in...used to play with him...back in the early 90's

    Yep, Daryl was definitely the guitarist in Watershed. Funny guy. Great player too.

    I'm a CT/ NY based nylon string guitarist who is coming to the Pittsburgh area for a possible gig in July. I'm looking for an acoustic bassist who plays Jazz and Brazilian music to accompany me. Please email me if you're out there.

    Hey can I join?

    I grew up in New Castle, PA and worked in Pittsburgh for nearly 15 years.

    I've been in Australia for over 7 years, but I still crave the occasional Primanti Bros sandwich, follow the Steelers, Pens, & Pirates, and use Heinz ketchup exclusively. :)

    Yes, we have Heinz in Aus...it's made in Aus, but it's VERY close in taste (much closer than any of that other stuff they call "tomato sauce" :spit: ;) )

    What's up yinz guys!? I live in Hempfield. Oh yeah baby.

    Why don't you all list your current bands & projects...it would be great to see you play out sometime.

    I play upright with standards singer Donna Bailey and my own group Cadillac Jazz.

    I play electric with jazz & blues vocalist Olga Watkins and get to sub in the Billy Price Band from time to time.

    And yes, there are several great Pgh players lurking on TB! :ninja:
